Hydrologic Monitoring and Modeling for Management and Restoration Analysis

The objective of this project is to better understand the interface of topography and hydrology on the UC Merced Vernal Pools and Grassland Reserve. Using a combination of empirical data and model development, our team seeks to better understand how water moves throughout the preserve.

Riparian bird response to vegetation structure: a multiscale analysis using LiDAR measurements of canopy height

The ability to measure vegetation structure at spatial scales that are biologically meaningful for wildlife is often limited because information about the spatial scale of habitat selection is lacking and there are logistical constraints to measuring vegetation structure at ever larger spatial...

Floodplain Heterogeneity Drives Riparian Vegetation Composition and Structure Through Channel Meander Migration and Channel Abandonment

Riparian vegetation composition and structure reflect the legacy of fine- and coarse-scale patterns of hydrology, geomorphology and ecology. Understanding the dynamics of complex systems requires scaling-up mechanistic patterns and processes. Coupling hydro-geomorphic processes with vegetation...

Monitoring freshwater, estuarine and near-shore benthic ecosystems with multi-sensor remote sensing

This special issue features 15 papers focused on the use of remote sensing as applied to various aspects of freshwater, estuarine and near-shore benthic ecosystems. The work described herein is diverse, ranging across spatial and temporal scales, and making use of optical, radar and lidar...
